Here's the inked pinup sketch. Don't like the face, but short of fixing it in photoshop, there's not a lot I can do about it. Chalk it up to learning and move on. I still think I may try to colour this one, just for the experience.
Spent the day working on a relatively simple pencil sketch for a pinup-style illustration. Thanks to my friend Simon for help with the anatomy, all mistakes are my own :) Tomorrow I plan to tighten up some of the pencils, hopefully finishing them on Saturday, when I can begin the inking process.
....and I spent the afternoon trying to figure out how to draw them - I really do work better when I have some sort of mathematical formula for the ratio of body parts, and thanks to Jack Hamm, I now have one for legs :)
Well, today was mostly spent on life drawings that I don't have the inclination to scan in ;) Figured I'd share the redrawn and tightened version of "Death of the Elephant God". Tomorrow I shall ink it.
